Created by and for entrepreneurs, EDHEC Business School has embodied the fundamental values of business for over a century, through both programmes to train responsible managers and members of society, and research that proposes practical solutions for the business community. The school assigns a prime role to the human dimension and is convinced that companies can have a positive impact on both the economy and society when they are run on ethical principles and respect the environments in which they operate. As a result, EDHEC graduates are known for being agile, team-spirited and highly engaged with sustainability.

We take a step further by supporting research on responsible investment and in dealing with global warming. By incorporating environmental, social and governance factors into education, we make sure our graduates are better able to manage risk and generate sustainable, long-term returns.

Mathias Povse EDF Ghesquiere
















EDF is the world’s leading supplier of low carbon energy, a business concerned about its impact on the environment and which has been conscious of its responsibility to society since it was established. This is at the heart of the company's ambition: "EDF, an efficient and responsible electricity supplier, a champion of low carbon growth."

In the Hauts de France, the EDF Group is strongly committed alongside communities, associations and economic stakeholders, especially in support of inclusion and employment as illustrated by its support of 2nd Chance Schools, its involvement in the Fondation du Dunkerquois and in the Fondation du Nord of which EDF regional delegate, Mathias Povse, is Chair.

The company has set six business responsibility objectives, in key areas for the Group, echoing the UN's 17 sustainable development objectives: combating climate change, human development, combating energy insecurity, consultation and dialogue with stakeholders, energy efficiency and protection of biodiversity.

And it also provided itself with a new world agreement on social responsibility in 2018.


1 - EDF has set a goal of surpassing requirements for meeting the 2°C target established in the Paris Climate Agreement by substantially reducing its CO2 emissions, which are already quite low.
2 - EDF agrees to incorporate best practices from the world of industry as regards human development issues: health/ safety, gender diversity, and hiring through internal promotion.
3 - EDF agrees to provide all vulnerable population segments with solutions to guide them in optimizing energy consumption and exercising their due rights.
4 - EDF agrees to innovate through digital applications that target energy efficiency, thus allowing every customer to consume more wisely.
5 - EDF agrees to systematically organize, for new projects proposed anywhere in the world, a process of dialogue that's both transparent and open to competing opinions.

6 - EDF agrees to adopt a positive approach towards biodiversity that's not merely limited to mitigating the impacts of its activities.

Director's testimony :

André RENAUDIN, Chief Executive Officer of AG2R LA MONDIALE


« Providing for social welfare and wealth preservation with oversight by policyholder representatives, AG2R LA MONDIALE faces a noble challenge: protecting a wide range of individuals throughout their lives, by creating a risk pool that is both technically efficient and socially fair. »





— With 29,1 billion euros collected in 2017, 15 million policyholders and beneficiaries, 1 of every 4 French companies with a group plan and 10 616 employees, AG2R LA MONDIALE is France’s leading mandatory occupational pension schemes and insurance coverage provider. The Group handles all policyholder needs relative to personal and asset protection at all stages of life. It offers both individualized and group solutions in the areas of insurance, health and savings as well as pension schemes, including supplemental plans, regardless of age, social status or sector of activity. 

CSR is an integral part of the AG2R LA MONDIALE culture, which, through its job as a social protection insurer and its joint and mutual governance, reconciles technical expertise and secures its commitments to provide the best social service to the insured and retired. This social responsibility is expressed first in the practice of the profession, but also in solidarity and patronage commitments, taking into account territories, investment policy (financial and real estate), awareness-raising and mobilization of employees. Naturally, the Group is concerned about the impact of its activities on society and the environment.
